Saturday Waltzingmouse Sketch - Darling of my Heart

Happy Saturday my dear stamping friends! Oh - look .... here's this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Isn't it a beauty!
For my sketch card today I used one of Claire's own Digital Designer Papers called Celtic Squares. I cut rectangles out of 5 of the colors (there are 8 colors in each design!) Don't these look pretty all lined up!
I cut my sentiment from Irish Blessings with a Spellbinders Labels Trio Die - don't you just love this phrase - "Darling of my heart" wow- it gives me goosebumps! You could give this to your spouse, to your child or to a very close lifelong friend.
The pretty heart lock is a Spellbinders Timeless Heritage die. I was going to try and find a heart button or punch a heart but then I 'found' this die in my rack (this is the first time I've used it!)
Boy, this card went together easy and I love how it came out! Isn't it great when a card works out the way you envisioned it?
On the inside I used stamps from Sweethearts.

So check out the WMS Sketch Blog and see the great sketch cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created this week!
Then make your own card using the sketch and link it there by Thursday 9/23/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!!
We're having a warm weather weekend here in New England - the last remnants of summer - but the nights are getting colder - crisp reminders that fall is on it's way!

Paper: Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow - PTI, gold CS - unknown, Digital Designer paper - Waltzingmouse/Celtic Squares.

Simple in composition, but eye-catching. Nice selection of securities, and the heart gently combines a whole. I like it.
